How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350F, line 2 baking sheets with parchment, SilPat or foil.
  • Place dates in a deep bowl and cover with boiling water. Let sit 15 minutes, then drain, reserving 3/4 cup of the water.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together all the flours, cinnamon, salt, stevia and carob powder. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile in a larger bowl, whisk together oil and the reserved date water.
  • Add the dry ingredients and stir well to combine (it will be very stiff), then add dates and sesame seeds and mix in thoroughly See Photo. Batter will loosen up as it works.
  • Roll small balls from the dough and flatten slightly. Place on prepared sheets (they don't spread so you can place fairly close together).
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Cool completely on the sheets.

    Jo jo ba...these are beautiful. My son is a total health freak and won't look at anything 'sweet' with manufactured sugar, etc. But boy do I love to serve him up 'healthy sweets' and he's tickled I go to the effort. Great post. Thanks.
